Pamela, a veteran advocate, activist and educator (yes, she’s been on Oprah!) has taken her no-holds-barred pioneering work in infertility to a new arena: genuine sexual liberation and self-acceptance for all women. Pamela’s full-bodied mix of intelligence, humor and startling vulnerability has made her one of the most mediagenic advocates for integrated sexuality and a taboo-buster around body image.
Pamela’s trademark openness and humor blew the lid off one of the worst kept secrets in this country: the power of the erotic core buried inside every woman to transform her life. Pamela has found the secret sauce and she is willing to share the recipe.
She’s a featured blogger on Psychology Today and The Huffington Post whose entries are regularly picked up by major media outlets--from Jezebel and New York Magazine to The New York Times. And on January 18, 2011, Pamela’s first book, “Shameless: How I Ditched the Diet, Got Naked and Found True Pleasure and Somehow Got Home In Time To Cook Dinner” hit the shelves.
Months before the memoir’s release, the buzz was spectacular. Notables such as Dr. Christiane Northrup called Pamela “a living, breathing embodiment of the power of pleasure to transform one’s life.” And Pamela did it without losing one inch from her curvaceous Size 14 frame.
Pamela’s mission is to launch other women on their own journey to self-love. Pulling the essential lessons from her own hysterically funny path, Pamela is teaching women how to harness sensual pleasure to effect change from the inside out. Pamela discovered that integrated sexuality and touch could break through the walls of shame that keep us tamped down and locked up, that inhibit us from going after what we want, and from living full-throttle and pedal to the metal. It is possible to heal dysfunctional relationships with food, sex, and fashion and let ourselves be seen for the wonders that we are. We are entitled to be as big as we feel in all spheres of our life. There’s room on the field for all of us.
